For a non-Russian who watched Makarov and Larionov in international competition throughout the 1980s (i.e. me), there isn't any debate; Makarov was simply way better than Larionov. And Krutov was better than Larionov as well.
What you say is probably true but don't most Russians, especially coaches , remember that Center in their system was much like a mid fielder in soccer and that wingers were more like strikers, so that production isn't always the best measurement.
I'm a huge career guy and would take them
